12v pump

been searching around for a pump to inflate my quicksilver and stumbled on one of these and would like to know if anyone on here has tried one, it looks good but the amps it draws is a little close to what i would want to draw from the aux in the boot of my car but i suppose i could always replace the connector with a pair of crocodile clips.

Airhead inflatable/airbed/boat/tube/towable 12 volt high volume pump. | eBay

Sorry Mate, it's not what you need. In theory it could fill the tubes before you finish them with the hand pump, but I fear that it won't do the do for any length of time. Your tubes pump to 3.6 psi, the keel to 6.?psi and the airdeck to 11 psi. That thing can't do that.

the plan was to pump the tubes but not to pressure and finish with the manual pump

I second Willk I dont think this is up to it, might do a lilo! If you need a good pump I would call RIB SHOP at Hamble as they do a few models which are made for your needs

I use a similar pump and it does the job, takes about 1 minute of manual pumping to finish the job off.

I bought a Rule pump that looks similar to this but at a cost of 70

It inflates my Zodiac in a couple of minutes, without the need for any extra effort with a hand pump.
It will also rapidly remove all the air when it comes to putting the boat away.
I use a small sealed lead-acid battery to power the pump. One charge of the battery is enough for three or four uses. I removed the cigarette lighter adapter and replaced it with a pair of croc clips for connecting to the battery.
I guess you get what you pay for.
